Salmon Croquettes

Carolyn’s “Zydeco Salmon Croquettes

(From the French Croquer “to crunch”)


In the American South and especially Louisiana Salmon was a Friday dish prepared religiousy by Catholics since we could not eat meant on Friday. Another big reason, it was Cheap!!!! You could usually find it on the menu in lots of restaurants in Houston and the Groovy Grill comes to mind...


Deep fried, pan fried or baked, this comfort food is still popular today. Updated of course with seasoning and red bell peppers. This recipe is a basic version prepared by late mother Angelina. Serve with a nice green salad, grits, and a nice homemade RoMoulade “Talk about Good.”
